Spotlight on Holiday Expressions Catalog

Welcome to our Holiday Expressions Blog Hop!  This month, 30 consultants will be showcasing some of the many new items available in the Holiday Expressions catalog.  Items in this catalog focus on the several holidays falling into October, November and December. 
If you have come here from Terrie's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.  The hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
Our Annual Inspirations Books are a fabulous source of ideas!  I always keep my old ones to reference and get ideas.  Last year, there was a decorated witches hat showcasing the Scaredy Cat line.  I loved that hat, but never got around to making one for myself.  Close to My Heart has a new line in the Holiday Expressions book called Nevermore.  My local craft store had a plain cardboard witches hat, it was on sale, AND I had a coupon that worked on sale items.  Here is my newest Halloween decoration, hanging out on the mantle next to Mr. Bones!
 Here is a close-up of the decorations - complete with clear sparkles, black glitter paper and the spider web faceted gem!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the witch hat. The original hat, along with instructions, and a few other versions can be found on Jeanette Lynton's blog

  1. I love your version of the witch's hat. It looks great in Nevermore.

  2. Stunning witch's hat. Love it in Nevermore.

  3. This is SO cute! My old eyes are having trouble reading your super-tiny print on your blog, though.

    1. Terrie, Thank you so much for pointing that out. I didn't realize it was so small! It should be updated now.

  4. Hat is adorable! Did you make Mr Bones? If so would you mind sharing how you made him?

  5. Hat is adorable! Did you make Mr Bones? If so would you mind sharing how you made him?

    1. Hi Debbie! Thank you! I did not make Mr. Bones. It was a gift about 10-15 years ago...I think it is from Party Lite.

  6. Well made hat, I like your silver version!
